Singing Karaoke has a ton of remarkable health and social benefits. There has even been a Japanese study that proved that singing Karaoke can boost your self-esteem, relieve stress, and also increase confidence. Not only that, Karaoke also strengthens bonds between friends and families who enjoy it together. Here’s a quick list of some of the benefits!
Helps in expressing motions: Most of the times the song we decide to sing is emotionally attached to us. We try our best to convey the message in the song to the audience. This is how karaoke helps you to express your emotions, you sing along with the music with all your feelings and emotions. Communication is very important for anyone’s life; it allows you to express your feelings. Karaoke connects you with the audience and conveys your emotions.
Relieves stress: One of the greatest benefits to singing karaoke is the amount of stress it releases. Since singing usually makes people happy, the level of stress in your body is automatically decreased. At the same time, endorphins are released and they help reduce both anxiety and stress. Singing along to a tune you love will also slow your heart rate and let you breath properly.
Improves your memory: Singing along to a song requires you to use the memory part of your brain. Even though the lyrics may be in front of you, you will automatically access the memories you have in your brain about the song. The other parts of the brain that are stimulated from singing are the learning and concentration part. All of them help with your memory.
Builds confidence: Look, we’ve all probably been shy at some point in our lives. If you still are, Karaoke is one of the best activities out there you can do to break that shy streak. Let’s face it, we all want to be more confident in some way or another. There’s social confidence and confidence in our abilities. Participating in Karaoke is a huge step in adding massive points to both of them (if the ability you choose is singing.) You don’t know it yet, but having the ability to sing in front of friends and strangers is going to help you out later down the road. It could be interviewing for a job, giving a wedding speech, or even teaching your kids to be tough. So next time your friends invite you to Karaoke with them, say yes. You won’t regret it, I promise! (if you do, that’s on you, not me)
Lowers blood pressure: According to Harvard Medical School, singing two songs is enough to decrease a person’s blood pressure significantly. Combined with the fact that singing is helpful for stress relief, the act of producing music or singing has significant therapeutic effects on treating even preoperative hypertension patients who were unresponsive to aggressive pharmacologic interventions.
What’s most interesting is that singing can very quickly bring down blood pressure, and the effect can stay for several hours even after the singing stops. That said, if you have family members or friends with high blood pressure, make sure to organise regular home karaoke sessions for them. You’ll not only make their hearts feel lighter, but their blood pressure will settle down faster too.
Therapy for stroke patient: People who suffered from a stroke often had difficulty speaking. Using standard speech therapy could, however, be taught to adapt and allow them to get back their speaking ability. Today, doctors have found a great way to retrain the brain of stroke victims through singing. Following the discovery of melodic intonation therapy for stroke victims, many speech therapists have started experimenting with singing and music therapy, specifically, karaoke therapy, to help patients with speech impediments.
Stimulates the brain: When singing, you need to follow the lyrics, rhythm, and melody. It means a person really needs to think and use their brain. And when you sing a lot, the air will flow to your brain in the activity of neurons that can integrate physical, emotional and psychological to feel excitement.
Burn calories: It may not be as big amount as running or going to the gym, but yes, singing can burn a number of calories that can be comparable to calories burned from walking, yoga or light house chores. According to Livestrong.com, calories burned depend on the weight of the person, as well as the body's position and other activities.
